Chicago Townhouse

NBA’s Design Director Lauren Buxbaum Gordon renovated her 1883 Georgian townhouse on Chicago’s Gold Coast to honor its original architecture – including an elliptical staircase – as well as the antiques she’d collected over the years. Working around the narrow floor plan was a welcome challenge, resulting in layered, highly personal rooms that functioned beautifully for the family. As Lauren said, “It was kind of a cathartic experience to be able to implement everything I had dreamed of doing, and it helped me figure out what truly makes me tick aesthetically.”
